Attraction along Hardanger

Låtefoss

Close to the road leading through the narrow Oddadalen valley, the twin cascades of Låtefoss waterfall plunge down the mountainside. The spray showers the road, while the river flows on under the old stone-vault bridge. In the 19th and early 20th centuries the waterfall received frequent visitors from Britain and Germany. They were taken by horse and cart from the fjord, up along Sandvinsvatnet lake and further up through the Oddadalen valley to Låtefoss. It was an arduous but rewarding journey.
